Visits...

Bryden wanting to put his finger in Larry's cake!

Bryden
Lately, I've had little time to blog.  The new computer system at work is up and running and has been very time consuming. Working on Chelsea's house and babysitting have made the summer fly by. We took time out for celebrations this past week though. Larry's birthday, and Father's day came and Mike& Tim's is imminent, so we celebrated it all!  My sister came from Illinois to visit coincidentally too, so she  celebrated with us.

Bailey & Emma, our sweet little cupcakes!!
Mike & Lori decided to cook out and here is dessert!!  We had great fun deciding which cupcake to choose...delicious!
Emma says "YUM!!"

Playing....

Cousins Emma & Bryden

 It was fun just watching them all play.

Looking so grown up!

Hi Donna

It looks like you are having a lovely summer! All you need are a few smiles and you have them in abundance here. I know what you mean about that movie clip, is it Bryden?

I thought of you often last week, marveling at the nurses who were looking after my daughter. It is a very special thing that you do. I wished that you were one of the sunny faces that popped into check up, :)

Best wishes Donna....

I think we all go thru this, especially this time of year :)

Beautiful cupcakes! Family celebrations are great, but it's the everyday little things that we all seem to remember most...like sweet Bryden and the cute puppy. You have adorable grandchildren, Donna!

Kerri said...

You got some great shots there Cindy...don't you just want to put them ALL in a frame?! The video is adorable...and I don't even have speakers on my computer!

Rebecca said...

What better to do than enjoy & celebrate family?! Glad you can do it. (We've been sneaking in a visit or two ourselves. Nothing like it.)

Donna, you take the best family pictures and it always brings a smile on may face. Your grandkids look so well kept and are just a joy to watch. I just love that video of your grandson playing with the dog and they enjoy each other's company so much. It's priceless. You are such a wonderful grandma and always celebrating special occasions.

Reading your blog is a nice way to start my day. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, JB

Donna,
Glad you are having so much fun this summer. Me too, as I am at my grandchildren's house this week.

Around here that is triple-fun, sometimes spelled hysteria. :)

Looking forward to your return. ...Marsha

I actually called my husband in to watch your video - I can never get enough of a child's infectious laughter over things we all take for granted. Happy Birthday to your husband!
